Dear graduates,

It’s easy to look at this season as one of transition. It is easy to look at this S the end of a chapter and the start of another. It’s easy to look back on these experiences as necessary so that you can close the book on it andover forward into the next thing. But today i want to encourage you to think of it differently. I want to encourage you to think of it as putting you one step closer to being the person God has designed you to be. One step closer to fulfilling the role God has set aside for you.  Whether you are graduating from high school or med school the fact is that you have made a choice to more fully learn about the place God has for u in this world. And for that I am more immeasurably proud of you and excited for you than I know how to properly express. Congratulations and God bless.
